HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR IT RECRUITING PARTNER
  1. Your IT Recruiting partner should understand and help guide you through today’s market forces. Current market forces affect where, what and how we search for talent. Keeping up to date on what motivates today's IT work force allows us to attract and retain talent more effectively.

  2. Your IT recruiting partner should provide your best-fit solution. Does your partner offer you choices? Each company is unique and how it recruits and attracts talent should be equally unique. The old ‘square peg in a round hole’ syndrome is very common today. Many tout ‘out of the box’ thinking, but actions speak louder than words. How are they helping you meet today’s business challenges?

  3. Your vendor should understand your business needs. Do they understand your business and technology? Have they asked you the right questions to understand the big picture and detail level of your immediate staffing need? Do they understand your internal recruiting and hiring processes? Do they respect your timeframe and budget?

At State of the Art, once we understand your priorities, we begin talking about best-fit solutions and creative approaches to fulfilling your staffing needs.

RECRUITING STRATEGIES

People are the key to any successful IT group. You can maintain your competitive edge by finding and attracting top talent. To stay ahead of the competition, you need a recruiting strategy.

As part of your team’s recruiting strategy, you need to create your group profile and determine where to effectively position your business in the marketplace.

As your local market experts, we can guide you in all phases of the Recruiting Life Cycle. We can consult with you in these areas or provide them as part of our standard quality delivery methodology.

Recruiting Strategies

Profiling & Positioning

Requirements Definition

Interview Process Development

Compensations Negotiations

PROFILING

We develop a profile on each of the IT Teams we recruit for. This profile is the basis for our search efforts on your behalf. We need to understand what a successful match means to you. How do you define success? This is where we identify the employee profile that will give your company a competitive edge.

POSITIONING

We apply your profile to your target market and develop a strategy to position your strengths, attributes and criterion to eliminate the obstacles to finding a successful match.

An ongoing evaluation of your acceptance-to-rejection ratio will give us the data to continually fine-tune your positioning. In other words, ask yourself this question: If I am competing for talent interviewing for similar jobs at other firms, what will attract the talent who will fit best here?

REQUIREMENTS DEFINITION

To build a marketable requirement (Position Description), you need both top-down and bottom-up views. Understanding what occurs on a day-to-day basis is part of the equation. Equally important is how this fits your department’s and company’s bigger picture.

From this information, we create your unique “recruiting description,” which differs from the traditional job description through the inclusion of marketing components. It must be proactive, action and results oriented. Candidates need to see their contribution to the part and the whole of your team. This goes beyond your technical wish list. Our objective will be to reveal the unique strengths of your opening and attract the best fit.

INTERVIEW PROCESS

A selling interview, of quality and depth, is key. Good indications of successful interviewing skills include your acceptance-to-rejection ratios and your retention rate.

We draw on 20 years of recruiting success and thousands of interviews to evaluate your interview process and recommend improvements to your hiring process.

COMPENSATION NEGOTIATIONS

Have you ever found the perfect match until you started to discuss salary expectations?
Have you ever had a candidate turn down your offer for a better one?
Many potential recruits are lost at the offer stage. Our motto is: No surprises! Any potential mismatch should have been uncovered before this point in the hiring process. We have worked through thousands of offers and can help you with your compensation and parity questions.
